>>I know some of you are a bit annoyed by this, but does anyone besides me find this at all comical? << annoyed, but I'm still going to install the new software as soon as it arrives. I'm annoyed that it isn't downloadable; you know it will be on someone's site inside a few days of the first 32Mb cfc shipping from electrix. & how cheap is that, anyway? $129 for a 32Mb cfc? grr.... why can't I pay for it & download it? now! but. it will all be worth it if the individual track stop/start/reverse works properly, if you really can go straight from record to overdub, if the bumps really have gone & (my own favourite) if the simultaneous pitch/tempo tape-speed emulator works as advertised. I may finally have to learn how to programme my fcb1010, which I have switched on exactly once since buying it about a decade ago. & the dry signal taking on the attributes of the track (pan-wise) means you could hook up two different inputs & split the repeater into two 2-track loopers..... or have one signal & it's loops go through a different (mono) effect depending which track you select.... I wonder if the revised dsp code has managed to reduce the delay on the dry signal at all..... damn them! [makes hooked-fish gesture] duncan.
